What Are Fallopian Tubes?
Fallopian tubes are part of the female reproductive system. These organs are in charge of connecting the ovaries to the uterus thus allowing the egg cell to travel from the former to the latter during the menstrual cycle.
Fallopian tubes can get blocked and bring about fertility problems. Luckily, even though surgery is one of the most common ways of getting rid of this problem, there are also some natural actions that can be taken in order to eliminate the blockage.
Yoga is one of them!
Let’s take a closer look at blocked Fallopian tubes and the yoga asanas that may help you get rid of them.
What Are Blocked Fallopian Tubes?
To understand how to treat blocked Fallopian tubes through yoga, it is important to know what they are, what are the causes, and what symptoms to expect.
Fallopian tubes can get blocked by scar tissue or pelvic adhesion caused by pelvic inflammatory disease, endometriosis, some sexually transmitted diseases (like chlamydia and gonorrhea) that cause scarring and inflammation, past ectopic pregnancy, abdominal surgery, endometrial tissue on the outside of other organs and fibroid.
When Fallopian tubes get blocked it does not only affect the passage of the egg cell from the ovaries to the uterus: it might even stop conception from happening, as sperm cannot reach the egg.
And what about symptoms? In some cases, it may cause mild abdominal pain but times there aren’t any, so many women learn about their condition when having trouble getting pregnant.
How Can Yoga Help Fix Blocked Fallopian Tubes?
Yoga, as Patanjali stated in his Yoga Sutras, is the cessation of the movements of the mind. It is a holistic health practice that seeks the alignment of mind, body and soul.
Besides physical well-being, it has been scientifically proven that yoga can reduce stress levels thus benefiting fertility.
As yoga helps reduce inflammation, augment blood flow and oxygen levels, it can aid against blocked Fallopian tubes.

Now coming to the part where we will discuss different Anasas to help unblocking Fallopian tubes.
Top-Two Recommended Asanas For Blocked Fallopian Tubes
There are two asanas that are especially beneficial for the treatment and improvement of blocked Fallopian tubes:
1. Viparita Karani
Viparita Karani, or Legs-Up-The-Wall Pose, is an asana with great curative and restorative power. Moreover, it can be practised with different variations according to your own body needs and capabilities as it is very common to use props as an aid.
For beginners, we recommend this variation of the pose, with your back on the floor and your legs up a wall (Picture A). To be more comfortable, you can use a couple of blankets besides the sticky mat to support your body.
If you are less flexible, the support should be lower and farther back from the wall. If you have good flexibility, you can place the support closer to the
For more experienced practitioners, you can try a full Viparita Karani without props. In order to do so, instead of using pillows or blankets to elevate your lower body, you use your hands to hold and elevate your hips while extending your legs upwards, as shown in the picture below
This posture is a mild inversion which allows the blood to circulate around the whole body, helping increase the amount of oxygen and reduce inflammation. As it is a restorative pose, especially when using props, it helps lower stress levels and thus, stress-related ailments.
Viparita Karani is a good natural choice that might help ameliorate blocked Fallopian tubes as it works directly on the pelvic area and reproductive organs.

2. Setu Bandha Sarvangasana
Another asana that is very helpful when dealing with blocked Fallopian tubes is Setu Bandha Sarvangasana or the Bridge Pose.
This posture is really versatile as it can be both energizing or restorative, and as Viparita Karani, it can be done with or without props according to your needs.
In order to perform this asana, you need to lie on your back on the sticky mat and bend your knees while resting your feet firmly on the ground. Next, extend both your arms at the side of your body with your hands pointing towards your heels.
This will help you make sure the distance between your feet and the rest of your body is appropriate: with extended arms, your fingertips should be able to caress your feet. These should be parallel from one another during the whole exercise.
Next, press down firmly with the sole of your feet to lift your hips off the ground and up. Once you get to this point you can hold the asana there or you can use a prop to help you stay in position, as shown in the next picture (Picture D):

When using a prop for this asana, you enhance this posture’s restorative powers. The wooden yoga block is a great option, as you can use it in any of its three positions according to the height that suits you best.
With no prop, the posture is more energetic:
Both Viparita Karani and Setu Bandha Sarvangasana are the top two poses for naturally treating Fallopian tube blockage through yoga. We recommend using props in both cases, as it enhances these asanas´ restorative powers rather than their more energetic versions.

Other Recommended Asanas
Even though Viparita Karani and Setu Bandha Sarvangasana are the most recommended asanas for treating blocked Fallopian tubes, there are other asanas that may also be useful as they naturally benefit the pelvic area and reproductive organs. These other asanas are:
Padmasana, or Lotus Pose, is a perfect asana for introspection, lowering anxiety levels and stress:
Bhujangasana or Cobra Pose increases blood flow in the pelvis and reproductive organs.
Lie flat with your abdomen on the floor, place your hands under your shoulders and reject the ground firmly while keeping your legs straight and extended, bending your spine backwards while pushing your legs and hips towards the ground.
Upavishta Konasana, also known as Wide Angle Pose, consists of a forward bend of your torso while sitting down on the floor with your legs open and wide apart.
This asana reinvigorates the legs and lower region of the torso, augmenting blood flow to the pelvic area and reproductive organs.
Also known by the name of Butterfly Pose, Baddha Konasana also helps irrigate and relax the pelvic area and it’s inner organs.
While sitting with your back as straight as you can and aligning your sacrum vertically towards the floor, bend your knees and put the sole of your feet together while resting your hands over them.
Breathe deeply and try to relax your knees towards the floor, stretching and widening your pelvic area.
Balasana or Child’s Pose is ideal for beginning and closing your practice. It enhances relaxation and thus, stress control.
